Went to Swensons for a burger and shake. Very crowded, hard for servers to figure out which car arrived first. Young men running around everywhere to meet the demands and I unfortunately witnessed one of them taking a hard fall to the ground. Not my choice of drive in restaurants and not very safe.

Swensons is an Akron favorite! Of course, when I'm in Akron, Swensons always comes to mind. I stopped in around 11:30 a.m. and the place was already bustling. Very few parking spaces were available on the outer ring. The car hop came up within 2 minutes. For how busy they were, the food also came out fast. If you pay... More

If you're in Akron, Ohio, you must go to Swensen's. The burgers are always fresh and good. And the milkshakes are the BEST! The vegetarian burger is the best you'll get anywhere.

Best drive in food. Gallery boy is one of the best burgers around. Plus they have a Salad boy for ppl who don't eat meat but enjoy a burger. The milkshakes are smooth and creamy. Super place to take the family. Open all year.

Love Swenson's,lately the service is lacking, especially when an error is made on their part. Called back to correct it and the manager was rude and very condescending. Haven't been back here since. Too many other places to eat in Akron, to be yelled at by some young punk supervisor. Disappointing since I grew up on this food since the... More
